father john misty
captivating mellow folk & amped up country rock from j tillman (ex-fleet foxes) merging such disparate elements as waylon jennings, harry nilsson & arthur russell.
returning to his solo work under a new guise, he may have been one of the deft hands behind the layered vocal majesty of fleet foxes but the surprise to those new to his work will be the edgier, grittier, often humorous lyrics. exploring self-destruction, relationships of the less sad & more resentful stripe & a less than content set of observations on loss & death. a real grower & shop favourite. “the supremely confident return of josh tillman… it sounds like he’s here to stay” 4/5 – uncut.
